It's a list!

Monday, January 25, 2010

To do this exercise you will need a piece of paper, a pencil or pen, highlighter pen (optional) and a timer or clock. Any kind of paper will do, but if you have paper and pen you really like, that will be even better.

Set a timer for 10 minutes or note the time on your watch or a clock. Write your name across the top of the paper. Then write everything positive and good you can think of about yourself. Include special attributes, talents, and achievements.

You can use single words or sentences, whichever you prefer. You can write the same things over and over if you want to emphasize them. Don't worry about spelling or grammar. Your ideas don't have to be organized. Write down whatever comes to mind. You are the only one who will see this paper. Do your best to avoid making any negative statements or using any negative words (for example: I am not lazy).

When the 10 minutes are up, read the paper out loud to yourself. Sounds good, doesn't it? Read it again just for the pure enjoyment of hearing all that good stuff about you.

Now, take your highlighter pen and highlight every single attribute, talent, achievement, or personal quality that is also shared by the "who you want to be" character from your chosen book or movie. If you don't have a highlighter pen, circle or underline those qualities so that they really stand out.

If you are working on something of a more general nature, for example, if you have made a commitment to finding a closer connection to the Goddess, or letting go of fear, or something along those lines, use the highlighter to emphasize those qualities, talents, achievements etc that will assist you in making that connection or releasing that fear.

Now put your list in a convenient place – your pocket, purse, wallet, or the table beside your bed. Read it over to yourself at least several times a day to keep reminding yourself of how great you are! Find a private space and read it aloud. If it feels comfortable, read it to a good friend or family member who is supportive.

Some days are better for doing these types of assignments than others. I woke up feeble in spirit and automatically chose the firs notepad I laid my hands on...about 2 inches by 4 inches....and had trouble filling 2 pages with anything. Perhaps I need to try again on a better day.

I DID see Avatar over the weekend!! Not sure I cared for the 3D..I don't think it needed it. A powerful movie with lot's of important messages on many levels. I choose to be Mo'at. I liked that she brought people together for healing rather than war but stood behind people who needed to be the protectors. We all have our jobs to do.

So what's on my list compared to what I see as features I admire in Mo'at? I came up with 3: Like to help people, Remember and care for the people I meet, am not flaky. I don't suppose she can use a 10-key by touch or is skilled at laundry?
